Well, it’s been almost a week since the Katherine Mansfield talk, and I am mostly recovered, and most of the stuff is washed and put away and life is mostly back to normal! I’ve seen some of the photographer’s images from the talk, and they look amazing. Definitely something to look forward to! For now, here are a few more informal glimpses from my camera, courtesy of various models backstage, and Madame O in the audience during the talk. Zara from Off-Grid Chic (modeling my green ’20s gown) and Juliet of Crazy Gypsy Chronicles (in the 1910s longline) have a modern technology moment in the middle of historical costuming. Sandra of Flossie FT doing hair: All dressing rooms should have spectacular stained glass windows: And then, the talk! How adorable is Martha in the 1920s bathers? Yellow stockings! And a dress with wings!
As of yesterday, I’m out of town for a few days, braving the wilds of New Zealand with the Naiad, Shell, a guy, and a pack on my back. Fear not though. While I am struggling uphill, and struggling over a fire and bandaging blisters, the blog will be on autopilot. So you still get to enjoy pretty historical goodness. And when I come back, you can enjoy pretty natural photography goodness!
